This has been a really great weekend. I’ve been trying to spend as much time outside as possible because the weather has been incredible. It’s 70 and sunny right now!
I’m currently sitting outside and working. Zoey is playing in the rosemary bush and Sullie is sun bathing.
I had a pretty awesome Saturday. I taught my hot vinyasa classes at Charlotte Yoga and Om Yoga and then came home and went for a run. After cleaning the house I celebrated the arrival of spring weather with a polish change. I did mint green on my fingers and purple on my toes. Both colors are from OPIs new spring Hawaii collection. The mint green is “That’s Hula-rious” and the purple is “Hello Hawaii Ya.” (What if your job was to come up with their color names…?)
After I got my nails done I took the dogs to the park to play. Funny story…for Sullie’s whole life we’ve always called her the “worst retriever ever.” She could really care less about chasing after balls. That story changed yesterday when her sister got involved. Sullie ran like she’s never run before to chase after a ball so she could get it before Zoey. All it took was a little friendly competition to motivate her. I think she’s still exhausted today from all that sprinting! 🙂
My Saturday got sweeter with an evening yoga and sushi date. We went to Sushi Guru, which is hands down my favorite sushi in all of Charlotte. I’ve been eating there for 5+ years and have never had a bad experience. Everything is crazy delicious and super high quality. So if you live in Charlotte…go!
If you missed this gem on Facebook, things got a little crazy at home late night after sushi. I was convinced I could still hold Zoey in my arms like a little puppy. Notice Sullie in the background with her “mom’s officially lost it…don’t even try to do that to me” face.
Although losing an hour of sleep isn’t the best thing ever…the extra hour of daylight is. I am SO EXCITED that daylight savings time is finally upon us. I taught yoga this morning, met a friend for a run and then met TeriLyn for brunch at Nolen Kitchen. We sat outside and spent a couple of hours catching up on life.
And now to jump to a quick recap of last week’s workouts. The highlight was lots of yoga! I practiced every day except for today. Yay! I also got 15 miles of running in. Double yay!

Thank god for my RunKeeper app because I couldn’t remember for the life of me what I did on Monday!

I finished the WOD in 8:34 RX. This combo of bodyweight movements kept my heart rate up sky high. It was a quick but intense WOD.

Lots of activity this week but body is feeling really good. This is the best overall week of workouts I’ve had in a long time.
